This may be a local configuration or network issue.

It's not a network issue because it downloads the .lpk file. Local configuration issue... I guess it's possible.

I don't have FreeBDS to test, but it must be a permission issue. The packages are open via the package editing interface. If OPM cannot open a package, means that the IDE cannot open the package.
Can you install a random package via the standard Install/Uninstall package... dialog? Please try to install AnchorDocking for example.

Yes, I installed AnchroDiocking via the standard Install/Uninstall package dialog with no problems.

I just compiled Lazarus trunk (in my home directory) and have thje same problem.

I have attached window captures to demonstrate the issue.

Thanks for testing. I will install FreeBSD to a VM.

You have to fight for your meal with FreeBSD. It took me two hours to install it, but in the end everything went well. :)
I also installed Lazarus via the package system, but the good news ends here:
1. I cannot rebuild Lazarus with profile: Debug IDE
2. I cannot edit files inside ($LazarusDir/IDE)

However if start Lazarus with sudo everything works like magic. It's a permission issue after all. I made a small video with Lazarus running as sudo: (please switch to 720p).
Why Lazarus behaves like this on FreeBSD I cannot tell.
